A Niger Delta Militant Group, Movement for the Emancipation and the Defence of the Niger Delta (MEND) has vowed to retaliate the life of every citizen of Niger Delta taken by Fulani Jihadist with 10 Fulani lives in a “disastrous reprisal” if the faceless Jihadist group proceeds with its planned attack.
The Fulanis of Usman Dan Fodio leadership which claimed responsibility for the fire that gutted the Federal Secretariat Complex along Okpanam Road, Asaba, had on Sunday issued a letter with a threat to invade and bomb the state capital, Asaba and Agbor, headquarters of Ika South Local Government Area of the state.
Naija Banquet gathered that the threat was consequent upon the unflinching stand of the Delta State governor on the ban of open grazing across Southern states.
In a statement released by MEND on Sunday evening, the Niger Delta militant group vowed to launch a reprisal that is more disastrous than that threatened by the jihadist group.
MEND said, “The attention of the Movement for the Emancipation and the Defence of the Niger Delta has been brought to the threat of some Fulani terrorists who have given a 3-day warning to the governor of Delta state because of hpho ban of open grazing across the Southern States. We also saw your taking responsibility for an explosion at the secretariat in Asaba.
“We are warning that if your threat is made to come to fulfilment, No Fulani will ever exist across the Niger Delta and all oil facilities linked to a Fulani will be brought down. If one soul is lost, ten Fulani souls will pay for it. If one facility is destroyed, ten Fulani facilities will be destroyed. We will respond proportionately ten times to whatever you give, the corresponding response will not be limited to the Delta, It may be with your politicians or with your rulers.
“We will launch three rocket launchers and ballistic missiles at any facility of our choice as a warning in seven days if you make bold your threats. We don’t make cheap our threats. We have shut down the country and we can at any time shut you down. We are the Niger Delta, We stand for the interest of the Niger Delta and we will not allow any coward to threaten us. We fight without running.”
